Forget the lousy tie

out_there_webI worked in IT for 15 years or so. A lot of that time was enjoyable, but frankly, not all of it.

In the end, though, it was worth it. Strangely, though the money was more than adequate, it was during this time that I found I really didn’t care for “stuff”. If it’s not useful and practical, odds are that I don’t keep it.

It makes sense, then, that when Joe and I wrote Out There, we did so specifically with the intent of it being both useful and practical. Stuff almost always goes away – knowledge sticks with you.

With Christmas coming up, we like to think that it being useful and practical are the reasons it makes for a great gift.

‘Out There’ is not some silly video game that will be forgotten in 2 or 3 weeks. It’s certainly not another ridiculous tie that won’t get worn either.

What it is, though, is something that draws the reader in. It won’t explain everything, but what it does explain is enough to instill curiosity. It creates the desire to learn more. Try getting that result with a tasteless, tacky, ugly sweater or a pair of monster feet slippers.

But what if those you’re buying gifts for have no interest in space? Well, in that case, ‘Out There’ is a great option! The book is designed to instill that desire in new space enthusiasts as well as offer insights to the space buff.

So where can you get this wonderful tome?

http://www.outtherethebook.com/ contains links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes, all of which offer ‘Out There’ for less than $5.00.

If it helps, consider it as giving someone a dream.

  • As a child I always believed that there is other life out there. In my studies in Astro-Physics sparks my mind of what our role is in the big picture. Many people make a distinction between the origin of life and the evolution of life. In this view, biological evolution refers to the gradual development of the diversity of living things from a common ancestor, while the ultimate origin of life is a separate question.

    This is a legitimate point, but evolution is about much more than just biology. The evolutionary worldview is that all of physical existence, both living and non-living, arose through purely natural processes. With this broad definition of evolution, abiogenesis–the spontaneous appearance of life from non-living matter–is a necessity. If life did arise on earth by itself, it would be inconceivable that this is the only planet upon which there is life. Otherwise, the earth would be a remarkably special place, and that could easily lead to theistic ideas. Consequently, most evolutionists like myself believe that life must exist elsewhere in the Universe or should I say, Multiverse,,,,,,
